Christmas at our London and Barbados showrooms is my favourite time of the year – in Barbados, the season is by now in full swing and those with holiday homes on the island fly in with friends and family to celebrate Christmas the Caribbean way – at beach BBQs and pool parties across the island. In London the weather is decidedly colder but the inviting glow of candle light and the promise of mulled wine mean that no one minds and thoughts turn towards making one’s home feel as cosy and inviting as possible.

Today I’m excited to share my ‘ultimate gift guide’ – 22 fantastic present ideas for every age and every budget! Gentleman can often be very tricky to buy for so I’ve included plenty of inspiration for masculine gifts such as the fantastic book ends or burgundy decanter with matching glass.

Jenny Blanc at The Hampton Court Flower Show 2015

Hampton Court Flower Show Jenny BlancFlowers are so essential for creating beautiful design, and I am thrilled that Jenny Blanc Interiors will be one of the sponsors of Henri le Worm children’s garden at this year’s Hampton Court Flower Show. Henri Le Worm is an exciting, interactive animated children’s app and website that aims to encourage children to engage with food and nature in a fun and playful way. Created by Olivier Blanc and actress Charlotte Salt, Henri le Worm and his amazing cooking adventures brings to life the journey of plot to pot, with the voice of Simon Pegg as the characters.

The opportunity to contribute to help create the shows garden at this year’s prestigious Hampton Court Flower Show (30 June – 5 July 2015) not only seemed an exciting step, but a natural way to encourage children to get back outside exploring and gardening.
The Henri le Worm children’s garden (stand number F443) will be overseen by horticulturist Chris Collins and will be delivered to an RHS standard. The centre of the garden will have an outdoor kitchen area where Raymond Blanc will be doing a cooking demo using ingredients directly from the garden.

The garden, will be full of exciting and interactive features such as an edible shed, hanging baskets, a heritage fruit border, raised beds bordered by carved sleepers and colourful gravel and to top it off there will be a 3 meter wicker sculpture of Henri himself! Jenny Blanc Interiors will be displaying a wonderful furniture range, hand-made using natural materials.

Jenny Blanc Interiors have provided some beautiful garden furniture to add to the ambience and there will be a member of the team with information on site for interested parties throughout the show. We would be delighted if you could come and join us to enjoy this lovely event and the garden we have helped to create.
